But they, measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.
2 Corinthians 10:12 (NKJV)
The word for today is very simple. We are not to compare ourselves with other people. Often, people look at other people and wonder why they don’t have the house, spouse, children, career, or finances that the other person does. Conversely, people do not look at others less fortunate than them and desire to have the sickness, disease, or lack that the other person has. We think “it’s not fair” when we don’t have the good stuff someone else has but do not praise God for the bad things we do not have to endure. The Bible says in Psalms 34:1, “I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.” Bless the Lord today and don’t compare yourself to others.
